    Trouble with engine prime

    you do not have to remove the front cover to take the pump apart, its very simple ,don't worry about the gears going back to the same teeth. Steve set pump clearance save the gasket and reassemble with grease on both sides of gasket ( I like Lubriplate No. 105 Motor Assembly Grease, 10 oz...
